Upon any restart and when the desktop shows, the system 32 folder comes up ALWAYS! I want to hide it so it doesn't show up. in win 98 you could edit the autoexec bat file so it says echo off. can't do that with xp.

Re: system 32 folder
Download and run this excellent free registry cleaner called ccleaner and check for windows problem solving issues, this should sort it out, as it is a corrupt installation file that causes the system 32 folder to open on startup.

1) Open any folder on your your computer and go to: Tools > Folder options > View tab > check "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
2) Look at your hard disk again, if you still can't see any files on it, there must be an error of your disk. To solve it, go to: My Computer (or Win+E keyboard shortcut) > Right click on the drive representing the 1TB hard disk > Properties > Tools > Check Now... > Check both boxes to fix errors.
Sounds like system and registry files may be damaged.
Firstly if you have not got a windows xp cd go to double click My computer>tools>folder options>view and uncheck 'hide protected operating system files'.
This will allow windows to see the system cache, but even this may be corrupt and you will require a copy of Windows XP for the required files.
Now run this programme, go to Start>run then type sfc /scannow (there is a space after sfc and the forward slash).
Press enter and it may require a restart to run file checker.
If the files in the cache folder are corrupt it will ask for the cd.
